The 2021 Annual Desk Calendar has been launched in the shop. Check it out here.

Sometimes taking a break from the spotlight to “grow roots” makes our lives and our work so much stronger.

Jenny gives an overview of the Adobe Textile Designer Plug-In for Photoshop.

The fashion shows in New York, London, Milan, and Paris have wrapped up. Here are my top 3 trends, from a print and pattern perspective, from this season’s shows.

I genuinely love the creativity of editorial and runway fashion— there is so much to draw from. The trick is being able to take trends and make them your own, with your own style and voice.

Looking for new print and pattern design resources? Jenny’s online print library has been updated with fresh designs.

Still looking to spruce up your desk during these cold, gray days? My 2020 Desk Calendar features artwork and prints on each page. Each month fits perfectly in a standard 5x7” frame and will give your desk a stylish bit of cheer.

So how do I sell my work if I don’t go to the shows? Well, admittedly, it puts the burden of exposure and developing relationships on me. I have to be committed to getting my name, work, and products seen.

I just hosted Thanksgiving for the first time in our newly renovated home. I have not always been in a position to have 10-14 people around the table, let alone in my kitchen and family room.. For me it’s a huge blessing to have a lovely open space to host my family now that we have renovated.

In the spirit of the coming new year (and new decade) I thought it would be nice to offer the Floral version of our Weekly Planner Printable. It’s usually $6 in the shop for unlimited downloads, but this week we will have the link active for those who subscribe. Hurry!

I love giving gifts! I am always on the lookout for gifts that are creative and beautiful, but also build a point of connection between you and the person to whom you are giving the gift. That’s what it’s all about, right?

I’m thrilled to have my 2020 Desk Calendar featured in the Boss Babe 2019 Gift Guide. They’ve got a great line-up of goods this year. Head on over and check out the post. But don’t forget to pick up a copy of the 2020 Calendar before you go!

When I think about collaborations, I’m working to be the best partner a manufacturer can have. I want to create art that is infinitely useful and, whenever possible, I like to show the creative director my vision.

I have a thing for details. I love love love detail and I will buy products when their details sing to me. Need is not a factor; it’s all based on the darling factor. I have tried to think carefully about what is that makes something precious to me.

It’s August which can only mean that it’s time to start thinking about next year! Wait, what happened to back-to-school? Well, that too. We have just one back-to-schooler this year and one home schooler, which means we have to be extra organized.

I’m back again with a popular post update. Lots of people want to know what the Textile Design Lab is really all about and, more importantly, is it worth the money?

Many of you know that I’m the voice behind the surface pattern design at Bova Creative. While I am still quite proudly a partner in Bova Creative and our graphics & interiors work there continues, I decided it was time to step out from the Bova Creative moniker with my own artwork and pattern design.
